New Look Courtesy of Icey Designs

The blog has a new look courtesy of Icey Designs! It took us a few tries to get to this design, but I love how it turned out. I told Hafsah I wanted something in neutral tones with pops of color, and that's precisely what she gave me. The old-fashioned typewriter was the perfect touch.

You'll notice that I've taken down some of the preexisting pages. I know that makes it harder to find interviews and past rounds of "An Agent's Inbox," so I'm trying to figure out how to include those references without cluttering things up. (In other words, stay tuned!)

In the meantime, I hope you'll stick around. The next few months should include a few cover reveals and more details about Steve and Clyde's respective releases. (In case you haven't noticed, Steve and Clyde will now be coming out in the same season, Summer 2015.) Exciting times!

Your new site design looks great! Glad to see you've got release dates (or at least a release season) for your books, too! My YA book comes out in spring 2015, so we'll both be 2015 debut authors!

Thanks, all! I think it turned out pretty great. (And A.J. and ocdtalk, if you wander back over here, do tell us about your upcoming releases!)

I love it- especially the typewriter. I find I'm always drawn to blogs w/a lighter color scheme. They're prettier and easier on the eyes. Excited see more about Steve & Clyde!

Thanks, Leandra! I like lighter backgrounds, too, in large measure because I don't want stuff to compete with the books' pretty covers:)
